Matt and Sofia's Fairy Tale Wedding

It truly was a fairy tale wedding. Check out this video of their wedding captured perfectly by Wil Prewitt

Every Family Has a Story

Here is ours...

Our story begins almost a century ago. The Bansen's have been in dairy industry almost 100 years. The majority of the Bansen's farm on the West coast. My husband's job brought him to North Carolina and that is when our story began. Three beautiful, healthy sons later we dreamed of raising our children on land and letting them have the space to roam and run free. An opportunity to buy property close to our current home and raise cattle presented itself in 2018. We immediately bought two cows (Jersey and Bingo). They are officially big pets because our plans to do farm to table were shattered with those big eyes! 

The property came with a farmhouse, three barns and close to ten acres near town. We renovated the farmhouse and then renovated the barn. It has been such as blessing to our family and we have enjoyed so much time out on the farm.

The Chic Farmhouse- Recently featured on Farmhouse Tours and Country Home Tours as the perfect Airbnb. 

We started this farm in 2018 as a place to get away from the outside world. It was a place where our family could experience agriculture, farming and all the trials and tribulations that this brings. With the farmhouse renovation and all of the time we have spent on the farm we decided to open this up to the outside world because this truly is a special place and we want others to experience what we have grown to love. This 60 year old farmhouse is your perfect getaway. Equipped with a full kitchen including all the utensils you need to make the perfect meal (Pots, pans, Keurig, waffle maker, toaster). House includes three bedrooms, one bath. Two bedrooms have queen beds with a bonus bedroom that has three twin beds. A beautiful dining room that seats eight. House includes WiFi, cable TV in the master, upstairs bedroom and main living area. Wake up to the sound of cows in your backyard. Wonderful opportunity to step back in time.

This house is farm style with a updated chic twist. Original Ship Lap on the walls from the floor to ceiling sets the scene. Beautiful hardwood floors line this house but still hosts the character that this house has brought over the years. We bought this house to give our kids a life that is no longer accessible. A simple, farm style life that is still close to all the local amenities. What makes this house so unique is how close it is to so many amenities. Less than five miles away is Historic downtown Belmont with local restaurants, shopping and downtown activities throughout the year. Also within five miles is beautiful Stowe Botanical Gardens. This entire home is set up for guests to stay and enjoy. Every room is unique. From bookshelves, to magazines, to reading nooks your stay is like a little paradise away from home. Nothing was forgotten in this renovation without luxury in mind. This is perfect for family overflow, business travel or leisure stay. There are cows on the property making it a truly unique experience. Our link to the Airbnb:

The barn is a unique fully decorated barn that hosts small events of up to 50 people but can host up to 100. The shiplap walls and urban vibes are truly one of a kind. The opportunity to rent the house and barn for the weekend for the perfect intimate wedding retreat makes this experience a once in a lifetime. Please contact us for more information. 

"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale." 

"Bansen Farms was the most magical place in the world for me and my husband. Our wedding was a fairy-tale! They were so EASY to work with and the barn renovations were absolutely gorgeous. I would recommend this place to anyone and we will be back on our 1 year anniversary! What a dream. Thank you for working with us and being so helpful and easy going. :) "
